CtOKLY has always cowddercd It a dire
calamity thnt sho was born on De

so busy wllh Christmas preparations her
birthday Is forgotten. So when Dad said,
"t want it big fuss mndo over Cicely's
birthday this year. Cllve her a danco nt
tho club and n present that will make her
'sit up and lako notice.' I'll foot tho bill,"
It was a cuo for mo to "go tho limit."
I modo arrangements for a dinner-dance
wllh all tho nlccat kind of fixture", and
then mother and I put our heads together
to find a gift that would ,mako Cicely "open
her eyes" even wider than they nro pat-
Since Cicely Isn't keen about Jewelry,
nnd tho wlehcd-for set of white fox is to
bo her Christmas present, wo ngreed that
a handsome frock would be tho thing that
would plcnao her most,
Dad decided that It should bo of velvet
trimmed wllh fur. to mnko (t real expen
sive, ns ho couldn't think of anything moro
I took Mrs. Mnthon with rno to ono ot
tho shops which handles only Imported
models, telling her to bo on tho "look-out"
for something really unusual. Hoth of us
lilted n model ot midnight blue chiffon
volvot trimmed with ermine, Mrs. Int!ion
was confident that sho could copy It exactly,
so wo bought tho materials.
Fortunately, Cicely and I are of exactly
tho same measurements, so that Mrs. Ma
than could fit the frock on me.
FIrat, sho mndo a snugly fitting bodice
lining of flesh-colored eatln. I sewed nn
edging ot Vnl taco about the armholcs and
tho neckllno and the hooks and eyes In
place while she worked on tbo velvet bodice.
When sho had basted the sections together
nho fitted it rather tightly. Then Alio cut
out the circular yoko end applied It to tho
bodlco with a narrow velvet cording about
Tho skirt Is full, but not clumsy, like
many of the newest models, and is Bnlhsred
nt th wnlsttlne ncross the back and sides.
The front is n panel which 1 extended up
Into the bodice.
Mrs, Mathon mads the sleeves long and
tight with cuffs that flare over the hands.
Cicely will love them, for they ore edged
with a narrow band of ermlns.
I covered n heavy cord with velvet for

When It was finished I showed It to Dad.
"It's a stunner, all right Couldn't bo hnnd.

by its size, he said: "Is that all tho dress

Baking powders made from alum or
phosphate ;may be bought for a trifle less
than Royal Baking Powder, which is made
from cream of tartar, derived from grapes.
Alum powders are not only cheap, but
they differ greatly, in leavening power.
If a cheap baking powder is used for a
fine cake and the cake turns out a failure
there is a waste of costly materials worth
more than a whole can of the cheap bak
Royal Baking Powder produces the
finest food, and its use therefore, results in
an actual saving.
